Nice spot for lunch

I stopped here with a friend for lunch. I had the ropa vieja, which had a great flavor and the plantains were obviously delicious. I'm not a cilantro person, but the cilantro rice wasn't overpowering, and my friend absolutely loved it. I had the mango strawberry iced tea, which was delicious. They... read more

My husband and I have been to Antigua three times now, twice for dinner and once for lunch on the patio. We have always been impressed. The food is a nice collection of various South American dishes with a bit of an upscale flair. Having eaten some of the dishes in South America, it is nice to have a more... More

I visited Antigua Restaurant with a friend. She had chicken mole and I had terrific chicken dish with a white sauce, rice and salad. Saying white sauce is a real disservice. It is delicate and creamy. There is nothing plain about it. The server was able to have a drink made for my friend like one she had in Mexico.... More

You must try their version of coconut shrimp, Encocao de Camarones, it is unbelievable! It is not the normal breaded version. It is in a coconut sauce served with cilantro rice and plantains, I just can't say enough about it! We have been coming here for a while and I have enjoyed their other food as well, especially the tequila... More

I went here for lunch with a co-worker. Thankfully I had a buy one get one free. I ordered Cochinita Pibil which is basically a pulled pork with red onions. He ordered pupusas which where very thin. He was lead to believe it was an entree, looked like an appetizer. Would never get either again. Small portions. Service: Arrived at... More

We bought a Groupon for Antigua to give it a try. We went on a Saturday night. It had a nice look to it on the outside with a patio. Upon entering, we noticed it was loud. We ordered guacamole with bacon. It was o.k.. Our entrees were a bit pricey, I thought, and the food was just o.k.. There... More

The atmosphere is very nice and clean but the customer service could use a little work, staff is somewhat judgemental. The food is waaaay to expensive for very little portions and just not worth it. To be honest, it isn't even a mexican restaurant, if you are looking for taco's, enchiladas, burritos and refried beans, this is not the spot... More

Actual visit 6/5/13. I had the Ropa Vieja and Cream de elote soup. Their ropa was a tiny bit different than what I was used to and I really didn't care for what looked like a tomato based broth that it was sitting in. I also didn't care for the green rice or the maduros that were also soaked in... More

The atmosphere was warm and friendly, the hostess and waitress were courteous and very attentive. Let me get something straight, I am a picky eater, but everything we had was excellent! Complementary bread was served; sliced, crunchy, on the outside and soft in the inside, with a garlic dipping sauce. We started with the guacamole, it was fresh and the... More
